Who would love this: Kids who love number and counting games (with a lots of Actions!)
Our four-year-old is at that adorable developmental stage - she has BIG imagination, enjoys silly games, and loves counting things at any time of the day! Divisible by Zero sent us this brand new game called “Rolly Poly” by Math For Love, and oh, what I can say? Action-packed, cute and entertaining, full of laughter, simply awesome!
Why I love ❤️ this game:
(1) Count, Play, Laugh - Get ready to move and be active - cause that’s what “Rolly Poly” is about! First, set up the counters in numerical orders (from 1 to 6); shuffle the deck, roll the die, pick a card, and perform the required action as many times as the number shown on the die (eg clapped 6 times). The set includes 36 “action cards” - some can be completed individually, some are to be done collectively as a team. The kids hugged, bowed, did some “star jumps”, gave each other high-fives, hopped (or attempted to hop) on one foot, took many “big steps”, made themselves dizzy with some spins, and named many types of food. Once a task is completed, put the action card under the corresponding number counter. The game ends (and everybody wins) when we “scored” and covered every counter. I love the cooperative nature of this game, and how young kids can learn counting through so much happy laughter, high energy and JOY!
(2) Add-On Cards For Advanced Play - And when your kids are ready for something more challenging, pull out the “advanced play” cards and spice up the game with some adding-up exercises. Pick an add-on card (+1, +2, +3, +4, +5, +6); this time, roll a die, pick a card, and perform the required action as many times as the number shown on the die plus the “add-on” number (eg, if the add-on number is +3, and you roll a “6”, you do the action 9 times instead of 6).
(3) Super Cute Components (Especially The Giant Plush Die) - My personal favourite part of this game is the bright orange, soft and squeezable, giant plush die. It’s fun to throw it around, roll it everywhere, or simply just squash it. (4) I also love the wooden number counters, the thick cardboard components, and the creatively-designed storage box with the game steps printed and illustrated on four sides of it. The quality of components is good, and the design is playful and fun!
